UVa Hosts DT3 In Friday Exhibition


CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.
The Virginia women’s basketball team, ranked No. 15 in both preseason national polls, prepares for the 2008-09 campaign on Friday with an exhibition contest against DT3. Tip-off from John Paul Jones Arena is scheduled for 7 p.m., and live statistics will be available at VirginiaSports.com.

Additionally, the game will be broadcast over the airwaves on WINA 1070 in the Charlottesville area with Jay James, Myron Ripley and Larry Johnson calling the action. Live audio can be accessed on the internet with V Pass.

Last season, the Cavaliers finished with a 24-10 overall record (10-4 in the Atlantic Coast Conference) and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

This year, UVa has been picked to finish fourth in the ACC and is led by three returning starters in Monica Wright (Woodbridge, Va.), Lyndra Littles (Washington, D.C.) and Aisha Mohammed (Lagos, Nigeria).

Wright, recently named a Wooden Award candidate and to the preseason All-ACC team, led the team in scoring last year with 17.6 points per game. The 2006-07 ACC Rookie of the Year, Wright followed up her freshman season by garnering Associated Press honorable mention All-America, WBCA Region 2 All-America, All-ACC second team, ACC all-defensive team and ACC all-tournament team honors at the end of last season.

Head coach Debbie Ryan returns for her 32nd year on the sidelines. The Class of 2008 Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame inductee has posted a 675-288 career record with the Cavaliers.

UVa’s season-opener is next Friday, Nov. 14, vs. High Point. Tip-off from John Paul Jones Arena is 7 p.m.
